I have long been a fan of Stray Dog Designs, so it was great to see that West Elm was collaborating with them this season to bring some great pieces in white with a great sculptural quality. I remember speaking with Stray Dog founder Jane Gray years ago at market in Atlanta and she was very gracious and warm. I admire their commitment to use recycled materials and pay fair wages to their craftspeople - a win/win for everyone. I also really like this new lamp, although the shade has been toned down/neutralized a bit for the mass market could be juiced up again with a little tweaking or new shade altogether. You can find it here.

This side table is another great "textured" piece that caught my eye.
